Tea and Tarts Folk Concert in Tansley

Local group The Heartless Tarts will be supporting The Teacups in a concert at the Florence Nightingale Memorial Hall, Holloway, on Saturday, March 29.

The Teacups are the latest sensation to come from the Newcastle University Folk and Traditional Music Degree Course, and are gaining a big reputation.

They are a vibrant new folk vocal quartet, featuring Alex Cumming, Kate Locksley, Rosie Calvert and Will Finn. They perform traditional and contemporary songs in a wide variety of styles from all over the UK and beyond in new and exciting arrangements.

The Heartless Tarts consist of Alison Green, Helen Boyce, Annie McClimont and Gwenna Carless, all of whom are members of the prestigious Fishpond Choir. Singing mainly traditional folk songs, their voices blend beautifully in unaccompanied three/four part harmony. The Tarts also released their debut CD Ladies Wot Sing last year, which received great reviews.

The concert starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are available on 01773 856545 or from Mayfield Stores, Church Street, Holloway.
